Many parents tell me that they struggle to introduce veggies into the diet of their little kids. Here is the salad that my daughter makes me to help her to do it. I don’t know what could be simpler than this salad.
2-3 medium sized carrots
2 tart apples
1 table spoon of lemon juice
1 table spoon of sunflower oil
Wash carrots and apples. Peel apple skin and finely shred both of the ingredients. Add lemon juice and oil. If you like form the salad into the carrot shape.
If you like it to be more filling just sprinkle it with walnuts, pumpkin seeds or/and pine nuts.
Just recently I read a few posts that people fast on juices these days. And they drink juices made out of oranges, watermelons and other tropical fruits. But let’s think.
We live in Canada. It is winter now. Nature already prepared everything for us. If you look around in the forest you definitely will not miss pine trees. They are tall, beautiful and have very long needles. These needles are loaded with Vitamin C and A. Half a cup of crushed needles will simply substitute one full lemon by Vitamin C content. And here are some recipes for you:
Pine buds – just eat them raw. They are the most powerful in winter time, boost immune system, help with any type of respiratory illnesses
Pine needles raw – chew up into a ball and clean your teeth instead of toothpaste
Pine needles tea – ½ cup of crushed needles for two cups of nearly boiling water. I prefer not to simmer it. Simply poor it into thermos and let it sit for at least half an hour. You don’t need to drain it. If you like add some honey or cinnamon. This drink is full of vitamins C and A as well as of other important micro elements. If you have any other recipes, please, write them in the comments, this will make me very happy!
